Illinois man, Michael Jefferson who was being detained in Menard Maximum Security Correctional Facility for a parole violation of a gun charge, died mysteriously while in custody and his family wants answers. Jefferson was found unresponsive in his cell on July 11 and was taken to Chester memorial hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:20 pm.
Less than 24 hours after his death, the Illinois Dept of Corrections had already taken Jeffersons body to another hospital, conducted a quick autopsy and sent the body back to Jefferson’s family. But when Jefferson’s body was brought back to Chicago by a funeral home, his family noticed something terribly wrong.
Jefferson is the reportedly at least the 4th person in the Menard Correctional Facility to die under suspicious circumstances.
